Mary Colbert: Sin, Not Climate Change, Is Causing Extreme Weather and Natural Disasters

Religious Right activist and author Mary Colbert was a guest on “The Jim Bakker Show” today, where she asserted that Satan is using the issue of climate change to distract humanity from the fact that the End Times are rapidly approaching.

Colbert, who along with her husband, Don, was listed by Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign site as being among the “Christian leaders” supporting his campaign, said that extreme weather and natural disasters have nothing to do with climate change but are rather the result of sin.

“The devil knows what is in the word of God,” she said. “I truly believe that because he knows what the word says—that toward the End Times, earthquakes, tornadoes, storms, all these things are going to happen as the birth pangs of the return of Jesus Christ—now the enemy is trying to change that narrative for the mindset of the people that this has to do with climate change, so that they can believe it’s something outside of their control that is happening.”

“The thing that man needs to do is repent,” Colbert declared. “Repentance would delay things, but because of this hard-heartedness and evil that is increasing, the birth pangs of the earth are getting worse. It has nothing to do with coal, it has nothing to do with climate change, it has to do with the sin nature that’s increasing in the earth.”
